Watch MSNBC Host Pound Obama On Fox Criticism ➠ I’m Embarrassed For Him’
“I don’t know where to start,” the host said after playing Obama’s clip from yesterday. “In a bipartisan summit you decide to attack a cable news channel as the problem and saying that Roger Ailes calls people leeches and that Roger Ailes’s netowrk calls people leeches, sponges, and lazy, that, first of all, at a summit that’s supposed to bring both sides together on poverty is stunning to me.
“Secondly — and I guess this is the problem — Barack Obama says if we are to change the way that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell think, then we have to change — change the way they think? Is he really the sole arbitor of what is right and just? Is he the only one who cares about the poor? Could it be that a lot of people like me don’t think that a top-down approach and trickle-down liberalism works any more than trickle-down conservatism? The arrogance to say if we are to change the way our opponents think — you know what? Maybe he needs the change the way he thinks. The arrogance of it all is staggering.”
Scarborough called it an “illuminating moment” in Obama’s presidency and said he was “embarrassed for him.” More
